Strictly Come Fundraising Showcasing some signature moves and raising money

Debs Adams at eventOur fundraisers come up with all kinds of varied and fun events to help raise funds and support the work that we do. 

Debs Adams from Wakefield organised a Strictly Come Dancing inspired event that raised £16,000 for our Speak out Stay safe programme in local primary schools


 Debs says:
"I wanted to organise a community event which would bring the people of our large village together. With a few friends and local retailers, I recruited 16 dancers to perform their hearts out to an audience of 370 people at Horbury Academy.

The fundraising wasn’t hard – the dancers raised sponsorship online, I sought support from local retailers and of course there were ticket sales and the raffle. It was a fantastic partnership between us and the Academy who gave us a venue in the heart of the village.

The hardest bit was finding the dancers – but once they began their training, they loved it and wholeheartedly supported the work of the Spe3ak out Stay safe programme in local primary schools. Lets Dance for the NSPCC has now become an annual event."
